ERWIN — The Unicoi County Sheriff’s Department has requested a state fire marshal’s office investigation of a fire that destroyed a home in the Temple Hill community Wednesday morning.

Sheriff Mike Hensley said his department routinely calls in the fire marshal “anytime we find anything that is suspicious.”

The fire was reported just before 8 a.m. at a home on Old Mill Creek Road. No one was home at the time at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.

Members of the county’s Southside and Unicoi volunteer fire departments responded to the fire call and were still at the scene Wednesday afternoon.
